verse 1 

Am                D       Am 
    I was born in East Virginia, 
          Dm         Am 
North Carolina I did roam. 
        A  A7             D 
There I met a fair pretty maiden; 
             Am E7        Am Asus2 Am  Asus2 
Her name and age I do not know. 


verse 2 

Am                      D          Am         
   Her hair it was of a brightsome color 
        Dm           Am 
And her lips of ruby red. 
       A  A7                 D 
On her breast she wore white lilies; 
        Am     E7        Am Asus2 Am  Asus2 
There I longed to lay my head. 


verse 3 

Am                        D      Am 
    Well, in my heart you are my darlin', 
      Dm                   Am 
At my door you are welcome in. 
      A  A7                  D 
At my gate I'll meet you, my darlin'; 
        Am  E7            Am Asus2 Am  Asus2 
If your love I could only win. 


verse 4 

Am                  D         Am 
   I'd rather be in some dark holler 
          Dm             Am 
Where the sun refused to shine 
        A  A7                    D 
Than to see you be another man's darlin 
       Am  E7                    Am Asus2 Am  Asus2 
And to know that you'll never be mine. 


Verse 5 

Am                         D              Am 
    Well, in the night I'm dreaming about you, 
       Dm            Am 
In the day I find no rest. 
         A    A7            D 
Just the thought of you, my darlin', 
             Am   E7              Am Asus2 Am  Asus2 
Sends aching pains all through my breast. 


Verse 6 

Am                          D     Am 
    Well, when I'm dead and in my coffin 
        Dm                     Am 
With my feet turned toward the sun 
         A  A7           D 
Come and sit  beside me, darlin', 
         Am   E7              Am  Asus2 Am  Asus2 Am Asus2 Am 
Come and think on the way you done.
